The Ritz Hotel

Photo From The Collection of Windsor’s Community Archives

In all the discussions of buildings we’ve lost along the waterfront, rarely do I ever hear any mention of what was known in its last years as the Ritz Hotel. Located at the north west corner of Riverside and Ouellette, this eclectic piece of Victorian architecture started life as a branch of Merchant’s Bank. The building fell around 1956/1957 when all the buildings on the north side of Riverside came down to create Dieppe Park.

It’s a shame we lost this one, as it was (in my opinion) one of the most interesting Victorian-era buildings downtown. Thanks goes out to Linda, for reminding me of this photo today…

Have a good weekend everyone, see you back here Monday.
